I used to use flour, pepper and brown sugar, shake the bacon in the mixture and bake in the oven.

I do bacon in the oven on my broiler pan which I line both the parts of it with foil so the clean up is very easy.  For a little change...sprinkle some dark brown sugar on top of smoked bacon, and then bake it in the oven.  It's delicious.  I use about a 1/2 cup of dark brown sugar to a pound of bacon and bake it for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees, maybe a little longer - just gotta check it and see how it is.  Some like it chewey and some like it crispy. 

Also, when I put foil over the slotted pan in my broiler pan, I punch slits through the foil so the grease can drain.  I line the under-pan with foil too so all I have to do with that one is take the foil off and put the pan back in the drawer.

I usually do bacon in the oven because it is easier. I have a couple lipped cookie sheets that I line with foil to bake the bacon. I do it so rarely that I cannot help with time.

I have been cooking bacon this way for about 6 months. I would not do it any other way now. I cook it for about 15 to 20 minutes. I do not use a rack as that is more to wash. I just put it on paper towels to drain when finished just like if I were cooking it on the stove top. I love it. It is so easy and I do not have to turn it at all. It still smells good but does not make the big mess. I do line the pan with foil. If you use thick bacon it will of course take longer. I cooked sausage links last weeks in the oven. I did turn them and they were perfect.

Oh I have cooked it at 350 if I have something eles to cook and it takes longer but works fine.

Yep the few times I ever served bacon I did it in the oven. I put it on racks on a cookie sheet so the grease would drip to the bottom of the pan. You just have to keep checking

OH MY ...how are you fitting 20 people in your inn?????? ANd doing all of this yourself!!!!!

i have seats for 16 ... 4 have to wait their turn to eat ... yesterday, had to gently nudge the first 4 out of their seats who were lingering over coffee so others could sit down. 

4 of the guests are children -- boy can they eat!!!  today, the moms and dads are sleeping, so elder aunts without kids are helping watch the children at breakfast who, of course, are 'starrrving' in the morning. but it is funny. they want syrup for their bacon. things like that.  and the elder aunts go along.

So who says you have to fill them up???? Serve what you normally serve..that is taking advantage of you in my opinion. let their parents take them out for more food later. You don't advertise "all you can eat breakfast"

The greatest bargain ever was to go to Golden Colon (Golden Corral) and the kids got a kid price and they ate more than I do.  SCORE!

They are charged adults rates now, but it was sure something when we got that bargain.  But they are not allowed to be picky, and they love good food.  So if you serve them a nice meal they would lap it up!

It is a boo-fay, in the south there are plenty of friends of the boo-fays so you can imagine why we call it that.  Not really a joke.

When the kids were young we found some restaurants that had Kids 6 and under eat free. I kind of felt sorry for them.  The twins only hurt them slightly but our youngest was an eating machine - slow and steady!

Not imtimating that SS falls into this category because I am sure she does not. That said, how much is a good breakfast is very different from inn to inn. I have have beautiflul plated breakfasts that looked wonderful and tasted even better BUT I sure would have liked just a little bit more. What one guest considers ample, another considers a teaser.

That is why I decided to serve family style, the guest can decide how much they need. The rule at our house (even as a kid) was (and is), "Anyone who leaves our house hungry, it is their own fault!"  (unfortunately for SS, kids are bottomless pits.)
